View from the Walters ~ Russian Enameled Silver


Mt. Vernon Square from inside the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, last Saturday.


This is just a small sample of a larger collection of Russian enameled silver recently bequeathed to the Walters. An exhibit of the entire collection is planned after cataloging the 260-plus pieces is finished.

Cosmic Cat Toy


Petit Louis Progress at the Lakefront



Two weekends ago, the new Petit Louis Bistro at the Lakefront in Columbia still had the old full-glass front. When I walked by last Saturday, the facade had changed completely, although the awning for the former Red Pearl is still there.

The cones and the tarp over new concrete were gone this week. Work is moving at a fast pace, but I don't think they'll be ready for diners by the end of this month as announced previously.
